Titled Open House, the third edition of the Singapore Biennale will feature over 150 works by 63 artists from 30 countries. Over half the artists are creating new commissions or premiering new works. They include Dane Mitchell who is currently in New Plymouth under the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery's artist-in-residence programme.
Led by artist Matthew Ngui and curators Russell Storer and Trevor Smith, Open House will be presented across four exhibition venues, each with their own particular character, that draw upon emblematic spaces in Singapore: Housing Development Board flats (Singapore Art Museum and 8Q), shopping centres and night markets (National Museum of Singapore) and international air and sea ports (Old Kallang Airport).
You can read more about the exhibition and lineup of artists at the Singapore Biennale website.
Open House runs from 13 March – 15 May 2011.
